“To my great sorrow I learned a costly lesson. Some have merely “joined” the Church–not being really converted as I had supposed. Human nature was still with them. They still were on the “GETTING” way of life–not Christ’s “GIVING” way. To my great sorrow, I had to learn that, even in the Church, many who are GETTING their living on salary from the Church, still live by the “GETTING” standard, not God’s way of “GIVING.” The more they GET the more they want–and when they get it they are never satisfied, but want more.” Quote from Herbert W. Armstrong, Pastor General’s Report December 27, 1979
QUESTION TO MINISTERS AND MEMBERS
- Are you joining with one of these “churches” or “organizations” simply because you want a PAYCHECK?
- Are you trying to find “the closest group to the truth” in order to GET what YOU WANT? Fellowship? Something to do?
- Which way are you living? Are you getting back on track?
